yes, Digitals hold and center better than analog servos. On the downside they use a lot of power and limit flight times. The beginner really doesn't need digitals, but if you can afford them why not. I have been flying helis for about 19 years and still haven't used digitals......but I'm not one of the Sazbo's, and I dont' fly any competition.

Centering...
I agree 100% with shuttlepilot and also do not fly 3D... I use very few digitals, but I do use a good coreless servo in most all of my heli's... smooth fast operation and work great for my type of flying....
But the digitals are the best things since corn flakes!!!!! Strong, Fast and Accurate.....
Good Luck.... Stan

What Heli???
Give us a little more info on what you plan to fly, and are you just learning??? That would help to get you the info that you are looking for....

I'm running HS 425BB's on everything except the tail, believe it or not. I'm running a 525BB on the tail. Also running 6 volts. Not too bad. As doorman said, what are you going to run them in, and that will help.

I have a friend running sub c's, and on his heli it made it balance perfectly. I'm running an 8 cell AA 1800mah pack on mine with a regulator. Just started using it, and haven't had a whole afternoon to see how long the batt will last. I'm also running a 30 converted to a 50.

what servos are you running was going to put 9252 on but for my level think they are not needed yet just finished my conversion to a 50 with hyper and mp2 then it rains for a week go figure looks awfully nice though

Batteries
I am running SR 2200 mah nicad sub c's in my EVO 50, my Tiger 50, and my (2) Vario units..
On the 50's it seems to make the balance just about perfect and I would rather carry something that is going to do something if I need the weight in the nose.....as far as the weight goes, maybe it would be noticable if your were a full on 3D pro, then it might show up....
But for everyday flying, loops rolls, and that type of stunt, no problem....
Good Luck... Stan

Lol,
I'm currently running an R30v2 with practically standard futaba servos all round accept the tail with a CSM200 gyro and TJpro (But with greenie paddles).
The setup's dirt cheap and has run a dream from first flights to flips!!!
I have 2 battery packs @ 2700 (i think) which last up to 4 hours (safely) down the field (dont even ask how this makes sence, and yes, i'm flying for a lot of that as i dont have a club to fly at lol).
I Also have another R30v1 but am currently kitting out an R50v2 and saving for a car to drive to a club (when i pass my test *grins*, take 1 soon).
I plan to run the R50 on 9001 coreless std servo's with a 560 gyro and TJpro.

Hmmm, i cant wait to feel the difference

I am just wondering what the advantage of thinking digital would be here.
The 2 of the 3 people i'v ever flown with were flying 90 size (3DNT, DynaX's etc) with full digital setups and were bleeding mental but they charged after every flight, of which i dont fancy.... Is this the norm with all out digital setups?

Unless you are running a $100 lipoly or li ion pack, with digitals, I think charging is almost like refueling.

That will be a fine setup on the Hawk pro..........

Skatefreak. I'll probably get a hard time about this, but there are only about 20% of the heli community that will gain or maybe I should say notice the change. I think a dig is a good idea on the tail for anyone that can afford it. The beginner or sport flyer can easily live without digitals for the rest.

SkateFreak, I have a full digital setup in my Raptor 90, I give that a hard time too:

9252's on Cyclic
601 / 9251 on Rudder
9253 / Rev Max on throttle
5945 (Hitec) on Pitch

I had 3 flights yesterday evening without charging and still on the green (Checking with a 2 amp load on the battery). I am running a 3600mah NIMH battery though. I like the digital setup as it gives you a more connected feel for 3D, precision and reaction time are also great positives.

For general loops / rolls no more than 3001's are required (for a 50 size heli) although a digital setup will be noticed as an improvement if you have the cash. In my opinion if you are at this stage I would save the money and use it on fuel. ShuttlePilot has the right idea...

But Arnt 9001 servos non digital?
Just coreless...
Surly it would have much better performance than 3001's for static loops and fun stuff lol?!
We'll have to see i guess

What would anyone suggest on the tail to go with a CSM 540 gyro?

9001's are great for that too and will work fine (better than 3001's as in your statement), I was just making a point that high end servos are not needed for sport flying.

I would also recommend the 401 gyro too, it locks quite nicely. The CSM's tend to drift if your setup is not spot on.

Ahh,
I get'ja.
Yeah, i think 3001's surfice but as i'm moving further with the 30 i just feel that i could do with some faster servos for the 50.... She's gonna be my "special occasions" heli
lol, and on my budget, my R30v2 was my special occasions an R30v1 was my throwabout
